About the North American Budenny Horse Registry
Founded in 2008 as a public interest group for the Budenny horse in North America, the North American Budenny Society made its public debut in 2009 at a California horse exposition with Kinaja, one of Zalatoy Ranch's Budenny mares for breed representation. It held the distinction of being the number-one English-language, American-based resource on the Budenny horse, with breed information verified by VNIIK.
Realizing the urgent need to develop the Budenny horse in North America, NABS was replaced in 2017 with the North American Budenny Horse Registry. With an expanded marketplace of current Budennies for sale and at stud, and connections to the Russian markets and network of stud farms, the NABHR aims to help the Budenny horse breed become more widely recognized for its exceptional athletic talent and honest companionship, and to continue its mission in education and conservation.
